Between 27th February and 9th March, 8,500 visitors made their way to the inaugural GUILD Design Fair in Cape Town to enjoy hand-made limited-edition design from celebrated global galleries and institutions.

We were in attendance, as part of the Design Network Africa (DNA) delegation, along with commercial galleries, design organisations and revered institutions from Brazil, Italy, South Africa, Spain, UK, USA and beyond.

Some highlights from our trip to Cape Town:
